7 children of Syrian refugee family dead in Halifax house fire

Seven children are dead following a fire early Tuesday that swept through the Halifax home of a Syrian refugee family, the deadliest house fire in recent Nova Scotia history.

Halifax police confirmed the deaths at the house on Quartz Drive in the community of Spryfield.

The family arrived in Nova Scotia in September 2017 and moved to Spryfield last summer, neighbours and friends said.
